Hotel Riu Tikida Garden is a Marrakesh Oasis

An all-inclusive four-star hotel, Riu Tikida Garden in the ancient town of Marrakesh presents a holiday oasis getaway the whole family will enjoy. Step into the lobby and take a journey back in time. Columns of mosaic tiles, sweeping marble floors, gold arches, tiled tray ceilings and bronze chandeliers welcome visitors in Moroccan elegance.

The grounds of the Riu Tikida are covered with red hibiscus, morning glories, orange trees, brugmansia, date palms and green hedges. With such lush gardens, the sweet aroma of flowers fills the air. Mere steps from your room, the clear blue water of the pool calls guests to come relax. Surrounded by date palms and flowering trees, you will want to reserve a chaise to catch some rays. On cooler days, spend the afternoon by the indoor heated pool and solarium.

Tennis courts, mini-golf and golf links offer a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Or if you prefer, the wellness center features state-of-the-art equipment including elliptical, treadmills, stationary cycles and weights. Children will enjoy the play area, especially designed for them. There are craft activities, shows and entertainment staged just for the little ones. Performances throughout the day showcase dancing, song and theater talent from the region.

Spaciously appointed rooms are quite comfortable and tastefully decorated in Moroccan furnishings. Jewel tones of orange, gold, blue and pewter splash throughout. Private bathrooms, with separate toilet closet or bidet, provide adequate space to unwind after a day in the market. Guests will not miss any of the amenities of home including mini refrigerator, microwave and complimentary wireless Internet to keep up with the world away from North Africa. Step out onto the terrace or balcony and breathe in the fragrances of Marrakesh.

An epicurean’s paradise, taste the flavors of Morocco in the Riu Tikida Garden Restaurant. Histories collide with dishes influenced by the people who have inhabited the country over the centuries, including flavors from the Middle East, Africa and Spain. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with snacks throughout the day are served in the main restaurant, poolside and the non-smoking restaurants. For guests who prefer a change to buffet dining, the Moroccan Restaurant is available for dinner nightly, however advanced reservations are required. Before retiring for the evening, enjoy a nightcap in the lounge. The all-inclusive charge includes all meals and beverages: alcohol and nonalcoholic.

Arabian influences are everywhere in Marrakesh: red cobbled streets, lime covered walls and a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors. The market is alive and welcoming as people visit the vendors, shops and cafes. Visit the old and new city. Hotel Riu Tikida Garden offers a complimentary shuttle service into the new city and the concierge can make arrangements for transportation into the old city.

On the down side, the pool area can be crowded depending on the time of the year you visit. Also not included in the all inclusive price of the hotel are the spa, sauna, Pilates sessions and use of the hammam.
